Simple Church Conference
“God loves You!” is foundational truth of the Christian faith. It is repeated so frequently among the faithful that it’s almost ingrained in our minds. “Jesus love me this I know, for the Bible tells me so,” is perhaps the first song that many Christians sing to their children. However, how do we really know that God loves us? If someone came to you and said, “Forget the Bible verses. Tell me why you know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that God loves you.” How would you answer?
This was the question I posed at the Simple Church Conference this past weekend in Stanford, KY.

Sometimes in simple church, this question can be heard echoing in the back of our brain. Sometimes the question is an accusation from the enemy (that we are really doing nothing of significance with our lives or that whatever we are doing is wrong). However, sincerely spoken it can be a powerful prayer… “God…what are we doing?… What are You doing and how do You want to involve me?” This Saturday, we will sincerely ask the Lord this question. What are we to be doing? With whom? Why? How? Simple church, while simple in form, is not easy. We believe… Read More »What In The World Are We Doing?
2016 Simple Church Conference Prayer for multiplication. In our fifth year of hosting this conference, we want to have a prayer focus–specifically praying for multiplication of disciples. One of the characteristics of church planting movements across this globe is “abundant prayer.” This year we will discuss the essential role of prayer in simple church and disciple making ministry and we will also spend time… you guessed it… praying! Together we hope to hear from the Lord in prayer about our relationship with Him and our role in making disciples of all the nations–beginning with our neighbors. Certainly we could spend a… Read More »2016 Simple Church Conference / Sept 10-11

Last month, I attended the Simple Church Conference lead by Neil Cole. I have read books and articles written by Neil but I really enjoyed the teaching on Life Transformation Groups (LTG). During this time, the Lord began to speak to me about seeking a person with whom to experience an LTG. I began to ask Him for wisdom about a person to ask. After praying for several days, God placed a woman on my heart. Sherry is a lady that I have met before, but do not know well. At first I did not know if I wanted… Read More »LTG – Just Do It!
